Buffalo Grass Seed (bouteloua dactyloides, not to be confused with Buffalo Grass Turf such as Sir Walter) is a perennial, native, low-growing, warm-season grass. Leaf blades grow from 25cm to 30cm long, but they fall over and give the turf a short appearance. It requires little mowing to achieve a uniform appearance. It has a low fertility requirement and it often will maintain good density without supplemental fertilization.
Ideally Buffalo Grass is adapted to areas that receive 400-900 mm of rainfall per annum, with a warm or cool semi-arid climates. Area’s located in both the Queensland and New South Wales East Coast are ideal with this grass, but nothing prevents it from growing in other areas that share a similar climate.
Please note, that Buffalo Grass grown from a Seed may be a different variety to that of Buffalo Grass sold as turf. The specific name for our Buffalo Grass variety is Bouteloua Dactyloides. If you are looking to use the seed to over sow an existing Buffalo Lawn that originated from Turf, there may be a difference in the appearance of the two grasses. Please refer to the image above as to what our variety of Buffalo Grass looks like once established.
